I love simple meals! The kind of meals with easy ingredients, little prep work, and a whole lot of flavor.
This Greek Lemon Chicken is all of those things!
It only takes 10 minutes of prep work, under 10 ingredients, and the chicken has the most delicious tangy lemon flavor!
When I first went dairy free, I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy any type of dish that traditionally called for yogurt.
Then I found “So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt Alternative”. It works perfectly in any dish you want to make creamy like this Greek Lemon Chicken!
It doesn’t taste at all like coconut in this dish because it takes on the flavor of the lemon and seasonings so well.
I’ve also used “Kite Hill Almond Milk Yogurt” and it works just as great.
So let’s talk about how you make it!
EASY GREEK LEMON CHICKEN RECIPE INGREDIENTS:
- Boneless chicken breast: cut into 2″ cubes.
- Plain dairy free coconut milk yogurt: I use “So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt Alternative”.
- Lemon: zest and juice.
- Seasoning: Oregano, Thyme, Salt, and Pepper.
- Olive oil
HOW TO MAKE GREEK LEMON CHICKEN:
- Prepare Chicken: Cut the chicken into 2″ cubes.
- Make Marinade: In a medium sized bowl, combine coconut milk yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, olive oil, oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper.
- Marinate: Place everything in a large bowl or freezer bag and stir/shake to evenly coat the chicken. Marinate chicken in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven: 375°F.
- Bake: Pour all of the contents in the bag into a 9×13 baking dish. Bake for 25 minutes.
